This basic muffin recipe can make hundreds of different types of muffins,just by adding your choice of additions! Easy to memorize, you too can be called "The Muffin Queen" by your friends like I am! Comes from "The Tightwad Gazette."
This recipe had come to me through several hands and has no doubt been somewhat modified although I was told the original may have come from Prevention Magazine. These keep very well and freeze beautifully. You will need a food processor to chop the oranges but the rest is done by hand You may have to do some searching in a good market or health food store for some of the ingredients but once you try them you will be glad you too will be addicted.
These make a great good-for-you breakfast! I think it would also work well to double or triple it, freeze the bars individually, and grab them on your way out the door for inclusion in lunch or breakfast on the road.
My husband has started creating his own wonderful low-fat recipes and this one is delish! Fabulous for breakfast. He actually uses just shy of 1/4 cup of applesauce, but I couldn't figure out how to note that!
This is from another website. I did a few changes, I have made 12 muffins with 2 cups of chopped prunes. Also made them with dried apricots and dates. You would never know these didn't have sugar in them.
This recipe is great for traveling. I adapted it from a Mayo Clinic recipe. I have been substituting other dried fruits for the raisins to increase variety. I've also substituted chocolate chips, which melt and make the entire bar chocolatey. I would like to try dried cherries sometime, perhaps with the chocolate chips as well. Dates were unimpressive.
I've updated this recipe to exclude the use of powdered milk since it is exceptionally high in oxysterols (oxidized cholesterol) and free radicals have atherogenic and carcinogenic properties. So, I substituted more soy flour and didn't notice any change in the results. I also made the portions larger.
These are good for a low point treat as they are only 2points each if you are following a Weight Watcher plan. Just remember to include points for anything you may spread on them. I like them fresh from the oven 'as is' :)
These muffins are pretty much awesome. They’re really healthy and really good too! Lots of whole grains, not too much sugar, and a burst of cinnamon in every tender, delicious bite. My brothers love them. Good warm or cold. The original idea came from the More-With-Less Mennonite cookbook, but I’ve made enough changes to claim it as my own recipe. :) This recipe makes two dozen muffins, so just cut it in half if you have a smaller family.
Inspired by Susan Lee's recipe, but I needed to make some changes. Hers is excellent. Here is the other version. Great when you need high fiber, very low fat, portable food. You can use any type of dried fruit you like, or change the amount or spices....No egg yolk, almost no fat, no white flour!
Recipe from Carl Lewis' Very Vegetarian. I make these muffins every couple of weeks and modify slightly each time. They make a very yummy and nutritious breakfast. My boyfriend doesn't like raisins and loves chocolate so I always drop the raisins add 1/2 cup or so of mini chocolate chips. I also frequently add 2-4 mashed bananas as well as some wheat bran. I also reduce the oil or eliminate it altogether.
